Education again
Thursday, January 5, 2006

Dana Blankenhorn (now that sounds like a hard name with which to survive middle school!) opines on the question of education:

But it reminded me that both open source and closed source disciplines have a common problem. That problem is education, recruiting new blood into programming, and training it up so it becomes useful.

CS used to be popular because you could make lots of money on the internets. That bottom-up push is gone and there doesn't seem to be much top-encouragement in elementary, middle or even high-schools.

Places like the Python Bibliotecha may help but I think more leadership is needed.
